Since children were heading back to school when this show was live, it seemed appropriate to waffle on about schools – including first days and my own memories. In the segment – “This is mine, what’s yours?” I asked what is your favrouite cake – loads of good responses. We also enjoyed music from Five, Kelly Clarkson, Dolly Parton and McFly.
In this week’s cultured chat we have an update about the Juno probe, learn about a small predator called the Microleo and learn about a a DoDo giveaway! We have songs from Tina Turner, Mr Mister and Atomic Kitten along with song requests for tune by The Carpenters and Paul Simon. There is, of course, the usual anagram game and riddle for those of you who would like to exercise your brain cells.
I’ve been trying to introduce a couple of new songs from musicals every week as well as changing the overall format of the show so you get more music and less of me waffling. These week we have songs from Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Wicked and Annie with songs from two new musicals to show, Funny Girl and Fiddler on the Roof. We have the musical theatre news and the usual lyrics and guess the musical quizzes. Why not put us on while you do the house work and have a sing-a-long?
My competition with Great British Bake Off continues as I broadcast at the same time – its a bit like David and Goliath, just without the sling and small stones! In this show the Waffling Topic is Picnic and we ask – what is your favourite sandwich filling. We look the invasion of the YellowJackets – I’m sure they were in The Hunger Games – and what to do if you find a venomous spider in your bananas. Music includes songs from the Village People, Kylie Minogue, One Direction and Britney Spears – definitely a dancing sort of show! We also look at the both the recent gaming and film news and play ‘Guess the Theme tune’.
This week’s cultured chat includes why we should give some love to the humble snail, a new species of dolphin is discovered from a fossil and, after talking about the oldest vertebrate in the world, we find out that the oldest organism is actually 2,400 years old. Music includes songs from Phil Collins, Christina Perri and Mika and your brain’s get challenged with the anagram and riddle quizzes.
So I have got a trial version of some new software to see if I can improve the sound quality of the shows. There was a bit of a shaky start since it all disconnected but I soon got it sorted the show appeared to go without a hitch. What do you think of the quality? Really trying to avoid the changes in volume between songs. In this Musical Show we have songs from Oklahoma, Godspell and the King and I. We listen to a couple of songs from Ghost, including one by Collabro and chat about the musical Wonderland. There is also the lyrics quiz and guess the musical. Why not come and have a sing-a-long.
Well, I had no chance! This week the Waffling Show went out at the same time as the first episode of the new Great British Bake Off series #GBBO! After an ingenious marketing campaign I managed to get some people to listen – don’t worry, no money exchanged hands! In this week’s show we waffled about the Great British Bake Off, Pokemon Burgers how a young seal managed to escape certain death from a group of Killer Whales! Music included songs from Bonnie Tyler, Alphabeat, Duran Duran and Europe and we had another theme tune in the ‘Guess the Theme tune’ quiz. If you were watching GBBO then now you can catch up with the Waffling Show.
This week’s cultured chat includes the highest mountain in Scotland, the oldest living vertebrate and a discussion about poo! – You’ve been warned! Music includes songs from John Waite, Robbie Williams and Little Mix and your brain’s get challenged with the anagram and riddle quizzes.
This week’s cultured chat includes the group of mammoths who escaped extinction, how men are becoming better at making up and we say good bye to the Jade Rabbit for the final time. Music includes songs from Gabrielle, Eric Clapton and Shirley Bassey. The riddle quiz was apparently too simple, although the anagram caused some people difficulties.
For the first time for ever we start today with a song from Frozen! Other musicals featuring in this week’s Musical Show include Oliver!, Wicked and Starlight Express. We listened to songs from a couple of new musicals which haven’t ben featured on the show, ‘With one Look’ from Sunset Boulevard and a song request from The Woman in White, I believe my heart.
